“Quick and tasty take on the usually sweet presentation of pumpkin in the fall.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blue Cheese Sauce: This sauce is also fab over pasta with steak or chicken. Heat Alfredo over medium heat, add blue cheese a little at a time, stirring constantly, add milk slowly until you reach a smooth consistency to your liking.
  2. Dip Directions: Bake the bacon/ pancetta at 350 for about 20 minutes or until crispy. Drain and crumble. Set aside. ( I prefer a combo of the two).
  3. Using an electric mixer or Cuisinart, combine cream cheese, spices, sauce and pumpkin butter until smooth.
  4. Add 3/4 of the bacon crumbles and fold in - do not use mixer as it will destroy the bits.
  5. Fold in blue cheese crumbles.
  6. Use remaining bacon bits and blue cheese to garnish. May be served at room temp or slightly chilled. If I had green onions, I would garnish with snips of that as well for color.
